A Favorite ‘Yellowstone’ Cowboy Creates His Own Blend of Whiskey
Season 5 filming of the hit television show "Yellowstone" is underway here in Montana. This season is rumored to be bigger than ever with sightings of film crews and even cast members being reported around Missoula and the Bitterroot Valley. One cast member who is the subject of frequent sightings is Forrie J Smith (a.k.a Lloyd from 'Yellowstone.") Forrie has been reported to stop at different "watering holes" up and down the Bitterroot Valley for a cold drink. As it turns out, Forrie knows his whiskey. He even created his own whiskey brand.
What better combination is there than a cowboy and his whiskey?
Forrie J. Smith created the whiskey blend with the whiskey brand "Oak and Eden." The brand is known for infused whiskey. Forrie has managed to make a "cowboy coffee-infused bourbon."
In a recent interview with Cowboys and Indians magazine, Forrie said
As far back as he can remember, Forrie recalls enjoying a bold cup of cowboy coffee every morning before jumping on his horse, which made it fitting to create his very own cowboy coffee-infused bourbon with Oak & Eden
What is even better about Forrie's whiskey is that he donates $5 from every bottle sold to the Shriners Hospital. He told Cowboys and Indians Magazine that so far he has helped 20 kids get prosthetics and he is hoping to get 50 kids fitted for prosthetics this year.
Unfortunately, Montana is one of the few states that has yet to get the Oak and Eden blend in stock. But, with any luck, you should be able to pick up a bottle of your own coffee-infused bourbon soon.
